Tim Cook Visits China For First Time As Apple CEO

Posted Mar 26, 2012

Apple CEO Tim Cook was spotted in China, which was his first time as Apple CEO. Cook visited the Apple Store in the Xidan district of Beijing. This is not Cook’s first visit to China. Cook was previously sent to China by Steve Jobs when issues came up with Foxconn. Jobs never visited China when he was CEO.

China Daily is speculating that Cook is there to meet with new telecommunications partner China Telecom, which began selling the iPhone 4S this month. There is a chance that he might be there to visit China Mobile to strike up a partnership. One of the biggest problems that Apple has in China is dealing with an “iPad” trademark dispute against Proview.
